The SpaceCome stay in a historical mining village here in Taiwan!
Mining was an important industry in Ruifang in the early 20th century. Gold was mined in Jiufen and Jinguashi while coal was mined in Houtong. The mining sites became popular tourist destinations after 1990.
Old Ironmongery Cottage, used to be a ironmonger's shop in this gold mining village. It's sort of a historical residential house in Jinguashi, New Taipei City, Taiwan.
And the most interesting is the house may be the smallest house provided to rent at the moment.
Althought it's a historical house, it has refurbished to a modern interior. From designer's creativity,Old Ironmongery Cottage House became a totally surprising little house.
You stay comes with a real bed and linens and towels, tv, wifi connection, air conditioning, heating, kitchen with basic utensils.
Nearby there is a local restaurant and grocery store. Bus stops are 3 mins walk. The traffic is very convenient.
The area is very quiet at night, and people here are very friendly.
Gold Ecological Park (Museum) is just 5 mins walk from the house.
And you can go to Jiufen old street by bus in 10-15 mins.
ps: But one thing is the cottage is an old house with a 100 years stone wall, which is alive wall. and it will not 100% as clean "look", like a modern refurbished house, cos the stone is alive, and we don't want to make a paint on it like a nail to destroy it's breathing.
And if you are looking for a 100% clean house like city, we are not that type, but we do clean and maintain the cottage sincerely.

Interaction with Guests我們是租房子,因此就是獨棟交給您使用,不受房東干擾,但有需要時,一通電話,房東會幫忙解決問題。
最後想提醒房客的是,我們是一整棟房子出租的老房子,老房子無法像都市飯店那樣去期待它看起來非常乾淨,因為老房子本身就有山壁' 以及舊有的痕跡,我們盡力地在這裡維護以及打掃房子,盡可能在我們能力範圍內給房客舒適的環境,就像去三合院一樣,很多磨石子的地板,很難如同都市室內磁磚或飯店大理石,一樣讓人感覺非常潔淨。但我們保證我們用的清潔用品70%以上不傷害環境。山上多少有些小昆蟲小螞蟻,在這個區域禮就是一個山區。 The Neighborhoodvery very quiet although there are neighbors next to us.
